I'm not sure why everyone has such an issue with this balm. If you look at the first few ingredients, it's not another formulation of their regular beeswax-based balm. It's a coconut oil-based product. Be smart and READ what's in your products before you complain that something feels oily.
I'm a huge fan of the entire Burt's Bees line and really like this product. I was looking for something a little more moisturizing than the regular balm, which is great in the summer but doesn't heal my chapped lips in the winter. This is just the product for that. Plus, it has a very nice scent and has a little bit of sheen. I use this and skip wearing lipstick or lipgloss so my chapped lips can heal. You can find this for a reasonable price at Walgreen's. I bought the two-pack.
I bought this hoping it would be even better than the Burt's bees mango or acai lip balms, because those were both pretty good,and considering that this one costs more and was labeled " ultra conditioning" I was pretty excited to try it. However I was incredibly disappointed. This stuff is the WORST. It consistently ended up making my lips more dry than they were before. Ugh. Terrible. If you're thinking of getting this,do yourself a favor and buy pretty much any other Burt's bees lip balm. Part of me wonders if they made this one so that you would have to buy their other lip balms to repair your lips afterwards. That's how terrible it is.
So I went to Walgreens with the intent of trying the Yes to Carrots lip balm. They didn't have it, but they did have a huge selection of Burt's Bees products. I'm not a big fan of Burt's Bees lip balms, but I didn't want some junk with petroleum in it either. This product caught my eye though and I thought that maybe I should give it a try. I bought it and my god I feel like I got ripped off hardcore. I can describe the feeling of buying this product like I bought a bag of chips that's full of air. I FEEL LIKE I BOUGHT A TUBE FULL OF AIR! Jesus I had to really squeeze hard to get any product out. And it wasn't even that great either. For $4.99, definitely not worth the money for a sub-par quality lip balm.
I have never tried Burt Bees lip balm. I was looking for a natural lip balm that would help moisturize since I have dry lips. When I apply this, it feels like I am wiping a slick oil on my lips that never sinks in. My lips look extremely shiny, which would be fine if that is the look I was going for, but it never feels like my lips are soft and moisturized. I get better results with plain Vaseline or Carmex. Safe to say I will not be repurchasing.
I had never tried Burt's Bee's lip balms before and was very curious to try. I purchased this product based on the label "4 hour moisture" and "ultra conditioning" I thought for $7.00 that it sounded okay to me. I have dry lips and no matter what I try I can't seem to hydrate them for long, as this product was probably the WORST I have used even compared to cheap and tacky dollar lip balms from bargain bins. It feels like i'm sliding oil onto my lips and then it feels like i've just mixed oil and water together and it's sitting on my lips fighting to stay. It dissapears within 10 minutes and feels horrible after about 4 minutes. It's safe to say that as my first purchase from Burt's Bee i'll never ever buy anything from them again.
I bought this instead of my normal go-to, the original Burt's Bees lip balm, because I was drawn to the promise of an "ultra-conditioning" balm that promises 4 hours of moisturization. While this certainly applies like a rich lotion, it becomes EXTREMELY drying within minutes. My lips have been crazy dry for the three days that I've been using it and this morning they started bleeding! Stick to the original and the pomegranate oil balms. This one needs to be taken off the market.
Before buying this product my lips were pretty much fine- I just like having a chapstick around especially during the winter. I saw that this was "ultra conditioning" and figured it was the best, especially being by Burt's Bees.
However, since I began using this product, my lips have become dryer than ever, painfully cracked and unless the chapstick is actually on my lips, this awful feeling persists.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone- instead of conditioning, it destroys.
I hadn't had much luck with regular Burt's Bees lip balm so I thought I'd give this a try. This was one of the worst lip balms I've ever tried. The balm was very thin. It lasted about five to ten minutes on my lips before wearing off. When it wore off, my lips were left dehydrated. Reapplying didn't help.
The only upside: The product was in a tube that was easy to carry around.
Overall, this lip balm didn't serve its purpose and was a waste of money.
I quite like this lip balm. My lips were really chapped and I would wake up with blood on my lips. I put this on at night and my lips feel better the next day. I also like that this one has a bit of a shine and is oilier but I can't use it under lipstick like my other burt's bees.
I've used almost every Burt's Bees lip balm in existence and this one is by far the worst. It is runny, oily, and doesn't absorb at all. I thought when it said "Ultra Moisturizing" that I would love this. But it isn't moisturizing at all, it never sinks in and my lips have seen zero benefit from using this. I keep it around only because I feel like I shouldn't throw it out because it was expensive. If you are determined to try something by Burt's try their pomegranate or honey varieties. I used to buy Burt's all the time but since they went big I have noticed that their products seem to be declining in quality.
